A purpose best not served. LOL
Agreed.

I find the additional suspects from Master Detectives and the VCR Games to be underwelming to say the least. I am by no means a fan of their portrayals either. To me, the original 6 are stock characters. To me, those additional 4 are caricatures. To me, there is a difference.

This isn't too off topic, but has a Clue game ever explicitly said that it was set in the US? As I recall, Discover the Secrets even just says that it was a house in the hills. They're undoubtedly alluding to Beverly Hills, but I don't think there has been a Clue game that has ever directly taken the setting away from England. I could be wrong, though.

If that is the case, then that would explain why M. Brunette would have showed up in Clue. Americans created someone they thought would fit into England despite them being an ocean away from it.

Since when isn't peacock blue a colour? I've seen "peacock blue" a number of times to describe a shade of blue. I believe it's a teal-ish blue.

As for Meadow-Brook, I can't stand the name. Meadow and brook are not colours. It would be like Mr. Tree instead of Mr. Green, or Mrs. Cloud instead of Mrs. White.

Another thing, is anyone bugged by the fact that Rusty is the only character without a title? I personally don't mind this, but I do mind that the last name they chose for him is Nayler.

Everything is wrong about Rusty.

Meh, I've heard worse puns.

A few of my little thoughts and opinions.

I like it when Mr. Boddy's color is black. Dark gray is understandable when Dr. Black is included. Flesh tones are terrible haha.

Rusty is my least favorite of all the characters. He's worse than Azure and Lavender. If he had a title, I might hate him less, but as he is I can't sand him.

I like Brunette, Peach, Gray, and Rose. I could live without most of the other characters though, including the Meadow-Brooks. I'd love to see a game that included Lady Oakwood somehow though.

I've always hated Miss Peach, she's to sweet and innocent, people like that make me sick.

That's a bit harsh for a game pawn....

Miss Peach is awesome! Have you every considered that maybe she only acts like that to hide her evil side?

Maybe, but I've always hated people that are all warm and fluffy. Even in the VHS version, I always hated her character.

I try to imagine her as not being too "fluffy", you know? Just a little bit alongside being a little flirtatious, peppy and a bit sinister.

A bit like this character, if you know who she is.
